For the second time in his
short life, Teddy Clock has survived a massacre. Two years ago, he barely
escaped when his entire family was slaughtered. Now, at fourteen, in a hideous
echo of the past, Teddy is the lone survivor of his foster family’s mass
murder. Orphaned once more, the traumatized teenager has nowhere to turn—until
the Boston PD puts detective Jane Rizzoli on the case. Determined to protect
this young man, Jane discovers that what seemed like a coincidence is instead
just one horrifying part of a relentless killer’s merciless mission.
Jane sends Teddy to the
exclusive Evensong boarding school, a sanctuary where young victims of violent
crime learn the secrets and skills of survival in a dangerous world. But even
behind locked gates, and surrounded by acres of sheltering Maine wilderness,
Jane fears that Evensong’s mysterious benefactors aren’t the only ones
watching. When strange blood-splattered dolls are found dangling from a tree,
Jane knows that her instincts are dead on. And when she meets Will Yablonski
and Claire Ward, students whose tragic pasts bear a shocking resemblance to
Teddy’s, it becomes chillingly clear that a circling predator has more than one
victim in mind.
Joining forces with her
trusted partner, medical examiner Maura Isles, Jane is determined to keep these
orphans safe from harm. But an unspeakable secret dooms the children’s
fate—unless Jane and Maura can finally put an end to an obsessed killer’s
twisted quest. Download and start listening now!
